@MeetMeAtMidnightInTheLibrary: when did your status checker change to under review, if it did? I'm trying to gage when i hopefully hear back
@WrongTalentedSpider: I don't remember the exact date-- but I think it was around Feb 11! it felt like FOREVER before I heard back (it was a full month) hahaha

@MeetMeAtMidnightInTheLibrary: thank you! Fingers crossed i hear back before april 1st lollll
is there an admitted students group anywhere? I know the school has a FB group for once you've put down a seat deposit, but I'd love to find one I can join before that lol
yo idk if this is going to be relevant to anyone in here, but i applied around the first week of november and called admissions to get an update; i was told I would likely not hear back until around 2 weeks from now. a bit dissapointing, but to anyone waiting in a similar boat as me, they assured me they are hard at work...

hi! I got the under review email early feb but my status checker has always been complete. is this normal??? am I in fact under review or am I not under review until my status checker changes lol
@ReesaTeesa: I experienced the same thing lol. I got the UR email back in mid January and my status checker FINALLY changed to UR today lol
My status checker changed to under review and I got an email confirming my application went under review. I just checked again today and my status checker changed again to your application is complete and awaiting review. Has this happened to anyone else?

@Yeah that’s how mine
@ReesaTeesa: that’s how mine was. Applied 1/31, under review 2/06 and back to complete and been complete since then
I’m being forced to deposit elsewhere. Unfortunate they didn’t get back before deposits

Mine went UR for ten days and got the decision. Do anyone know when they start to pull ppl out of WL?
